Trapped fox cub rescued from net

This fox cub was caught in a cricket net in Norwich and rescued by the RSPCA

A fox cub has been rescued after being tangled up in a cricket net in Norfolk.

A member of the public saw the trapped animal and called the RSPCA. Staff from the charity then freed the cub and released him back into the wild.

The RSPCA inspector said that if the net had been lifted off the ground just a little bit, the fox cub wouldn't have got stuck.

He reckons it's important that sports clubs take more care with all their equipment to stop it harming animals.
